Exciting news for the choir and for Franklin County!

The Gema Chandra Cendrawasih University Choir is heading to Franklin County, Indiana, on Tuesday, for a full day of sharing their gift of song and enjoying all that the good folk of Franklin County are planning. This incredibly gifted choir was destined for the World Choir Games in Cincinnati when they ran into major flight problems, which caused them to miss all of the World Choir Game competitions.

With a bit of luck, Franklin County residents Mary Keck and her daughter Maria met the choir outside of the US Bank Arena Saturday evening after the closing ceremonies of the World Choir Games. The choir members were dancing and singing. And, they were looking for venues to perform their magic over the next couple of days. Ms. Keck offered them a warm Franklin County welcome and, as a result, Franklin County will host this gifted 45-member choir from Papua, Indonesia.

Tuesday morning, the Gospel of Life Ministry Center of Brookville will team up with the Morgan Canoe Family, in the Morgan Outdoor Adventure Bus, and escort the choir from their hotel to the scenic Whitewater River. The Morgan family will provide free tubing for all of the choir members. Then the bus will chauffeur them to a private home for lunch, swimming, corn hole, volleyball, and a concert for family and friends.

Next the Morgan Family's Canoe Bus will bring them to the Franklin County Fair Grounds where the choir will enjoy the sights and sounds of down-home country living! After partaking of the cattle show and other 4-H fair exhibits, the choir will once again enjoy great food prepared by the good people of Franklin County.

The choir will then dazzle the crowds with their singing on Tuesday, July 17, at 6:30pm on the stage and then move to the Monster Truck Arena for another performance at 7:00pm.

After the performances, the Gema Chandra Cendrawasih Choir will attend the Monster Truck Show and may be performing impromptu song and dance concerts elsewhere on the fairgrounds.

Anyone wishing to help with the festivities, should contact Mary Keck at the Gospel of Life's email address: [email protected] Ms. Keck is also looking for chicken fryers for the Tuesday lunch.

Yes, I read that the show was cancelled; the Cincy Convention and Visitors' Bureau found them a bus ride to their flight out of San Francisco, they had to leave today. Would've been great for the county to have them, but I hope they get home safely.
